it was a lack of understanding of the importance of the latino community. i think they don't understand how fast we're growing, how influential we have become and how politicians are now forced to respond to the issues that affect latinos. i think that they over saw that. i don't think they really paid attention. >> sometimes we are invisible and we are fighting so hard not to be invisible. the commission of presidential debates are stuck in the 1950s. they still think the country could be divided between men and women and that's it. they do not realize that one in every three persons in the united states is from a minority. they think it is okay it have an african-american president but they don't think it's okay to have an african-american or hispanic journalist as a moderator for the debates. what we did, it was our wonderful response to this oversight, this huge oversight. instead they didn't want to invite us to the party so we had our own party. >> and that party turned out pretty good. >> so, yeah, maybe. >> you mean the presidential forums you're having? >> yes. >> which came after you w

of figures suggest, in 1996, u t austin continued to use race in admissions and had a black and latino representation along the line of 18% combined. in the next year, 1997, university of texas was banned from using race by a lower court decision. they saw a decline in racial and ethnic diversity using socio- economic status alone in their admissions progress -- process. but by 2004, using socio- economic considerations in admissions and what is known as the top 10% plan, where students to graduate in the top 10% of their high school is automatically admitted, you see racial and ethnic diversity, black and latino representation actually increases above what texas had achieved in 1996. now, we are very clear in the report that part of the reason that there is greater -- there are greater levels of racial and ethnic diversity into a dozen for is that the latino population growth in texas during that time period. as a policy matter, i think it is fair to say that texas ought to be pursuing other race- neutral methods of increasing racial and ethnic diversity so that it more closely mirror

to caesar chavez, aid latino icon and founder of the american farm workers and he is doing this in california that is a blue state that you assume he shored up, but when you do something like this, there is a political calculation in this obviously. he needs the latino vote. it does tend to go for the democrat over a republican candidate by more than 2:1. it is a growing voter block and key in states like nevada, virginia, florida, and even north carolina. there is also that goes on. >> before i get to the foreign policy issue which i want to get to considering that's the theme of the day, first i want to get to the debate. he finally has come out publicly or at least in front of the audience that has become public and made fun of his debate performance and did it in front of 6,000 people. how did that go over? it did go over well obviously. he was in front of a ton of supporters. this is the first time and why it is interesting he was talking about his lackluster debate performance. here is what he said, this was last night in l.a. at a fundraiser, a concert before thousan
particularly to latino voters continuing to extend that big differential, that big gap with mitt romney. what has happened so far today? >> reporter: well, president obama here announcing that the home of cesar chavez is now a national monument. this is a historic day but also certainly one that resonates for latino voters, not just in california, but in swing states like virginia, north carolina, nevada, and florida, swing states where it really does matter. if you look at the polls, president obama is leading mitt romney by about 72% to 20%. however, the big question is about turnout, and that's going to be the challenge, the obama campaign mobilizing their ground game. >> thanks so much kristin. and we'll be right back to "clear the air."

. >> the polls have the president leading mitt romney in california and among latino voters. there is good news for mitt romney on the heels of his performance in the first presidential debate. several new polls show him closing the gap between him and president obama. how big of a jump in the polls are we talking about here? >> reporter: po to put it safely here, mitt romney closed the gap. keep in mind, heading into last week in that debate, mitt romney was trail is trawling in several key battleground states and national limit what won't to do is show you some of the polls we were looking at today and with four weeks to the elect, this is cause for fresh concern among the obama campaign and look at this. we're going to start with gallop. gallop before the debate asked voters who was ahead. at that point, obama, 50%; romney, 45% and drop below here and look at what they say now after that first debate. 47% to 47% gallop tonight has it in a dead heat. you might look at that and say, hey, it's one poll and maybe it's a napshot of the race. several other major polls came out and saying almost ex

very well. the latino population not just in california but throughout the southwest, throughout the midwest and the rest of the country, the reality is that as a party republicans are doomed, if they don't find a way to court hispanics in a way to deal with issues that hispanics care about, the full range of things. what do republicans do? what does romney do? what does the party do? you've been in this situation. >> well, one of the great senators, senator mccain, has for years been a strong believer in immigration reform. he has worked to get a reach across the aisle with kennedy. they both had a really great plan. and i think the plan should be reasserted, because it doesn't make any sense that for the last 10 years, maybe before i even became governor, they have talked about immigration reform. and every single time they get into it they say, well, we have an election coming up. well, hello? i mean, the history of america that every two years there's an election. you know, every four years there's a presidential election. so there's nothing new. you've got to get the people'
in this election than republican constituencies than key ones. seniors versus voters, whether it's latinos, there has been this issue. so, has that been the strategy, trying to buck up the base? >> let me say a few things. first, national polls, the president has always done worse. >> i buy there is a split between those two. >> the president has generally done better in swing states because of the amount of resources. so, i don't think we should democratic panic, should not occur because of that and i think we could feel pretty positive. even with an even national poll, president's taken a hard hit and i think he's ahead in swing states still. on this issue of energy and enthusiasm, i think there was a challenge for the president the month before the election, the debate, that people thought the campaign was over and you were seeing people not as energized now. now, i wouldn't have had that debate performance to get them energized, but i think -- >> that is some interesting lemonade you're making over there. is there any sugar in it at all? >> i think as tight election, you'll see people
and skill that african-americans and latinos in particular have to master to be successful? >> absolutely. there's a phrase known as the black tax where you have to work twice as hard and be twice as good if you're african-american. there's a black linguist task. in this case i think it's fascinating that we have a president who can basically sum up in a nut shell what scholars refer to as white cultural ho homogeny. if you're too far away from whiteness, you get judged negatively. when harry reid said that barack obama can speak in the quote-unquote negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one, you will never hear anyone referring to a white candidate as speaking in a he white dialect, right, or can't speak in a white dialect unless he wants to have one. you never have that refusal. it's absolutely true. >> professor in 2004 bill cosby set off a firestorm when he criticized pockets of black america for failing to teach their children proper english. how has that narrative changed or evolved since obama came into office, or has it? >> ing think it's interesting, because i've received phone
elections, it could potentially help boost any sort of latino voter turnout for the president. at the same time, we are also potentially anticipating the president to react to the blistering comments from mitt romney earlier today when he spoke at vmi, about a 20-minute in length speech on foreign policy. will the president respond? we'll be listening, dip in and take some of that live as soon as we see the president in keen, california. but from president obama to his challenger, as i mentioned, today, laying out his foreign policy plans. the thing is, they actually don't sound dramatically different from that of president obama, except for one major detail. that's next.
